probstblueribbon (3218) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
500 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. JN17/08.

App.: Clear, bright golden, nice white meringue. Aroma: Plenty of grain and cereal, very light apple juice, very light Saaz hops. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Starts with plenty of cardboard, blech, cereal, boring; dry with a wee touch of bitterness.

A letdown.

Can. Looks like your standard light-gold lager. Nice grain nose; light skunk. Begins nice and refreshing, with a good hop beginning, semi-watery middle and mildly sweet finish. Fairly good grainy presence throughout. Quite enjoyable, but not any better or worse than your standard export lager.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2008
500mL can from the LCBO. Pours a nice gold with a creamy, large white head. The aroma: Surprisingly skunky? Wtf? This is from a can! Flavour is, surprisingly skunky and plastic-like. Weird and unpleasant finish of dry alcohol and fuel. Very little malt to speak of, mostly tin and skunk, implying there may have been hops in here at some point but have long since deceased. This stuff is just BAD. "...produced to continental requirements...", implying an island like Malta has LOWER requirements? What a stupid beer. I am less than impressed, and kind of want my money back!

Sammy (9280) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Very pale colour with some white head that stays as lace on the way down. More or less easy drinking lager. Near-astringancy soapy finish, not overwhelmingly unpleasant. Neutral aroma.

robinvboyer (3394) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
can from the LCBO. Pours a pale straw yellow, with minimal head. Aroma of cooked vegetables, corn, and some cheap grains. Flavour is much of the same with an off sweet corn flavour i’m not reaslly enjoying. Meh, run of the mill crappy pale lager.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2008
Can-Pours a pale sparkling yellow gold. The nose is grainy and full of lemon and honey with a good dose of subtle hops. Tastes of subtle sweet lemon and biscuit with honey and grains, leading to dry, mild, bittering hops. Not groundbreaking, but certainly better than expected.

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2008
Can 500 ml
Appearance: Very good clarity with solid full of depth golden color. Medium large white snowy cap on top with some lace created.4-
Nose Fresh hop aroma up front with clean quiet sweet honey like character.6+
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied with light yet easily distinguishable hop profile. Slightly metallic with sweet warming due to alcohol body. Bigger than average with more alcohol than usual but I like this way in this sample. Solid brew.

bobinlondon (1259) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2008
Bottled and canned in various locatons in Malta. Very welcome in hot weather. I’ve drunk inferior beers in Germany. Better than any imports that I’ve seen on offer in Malta.

TBone (13636) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2007
Bottled "Premium Lager" (BB 01/2008)
Propably this as bottle says 5%. Very pale yellow color, small white head. Plastic-rubbery aroma. Harsh papery flavor with odd rubber boot side flavors. Bad bulk lager but new beer country!

Bottled. Pale yellowish colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is rubber gloves, grass and sweaty socks. Flavour is rubber, metal, malts hops and big grassyness in finish and aftertaste.
